Incumbent Milos Zeman has won the most votes but not enough to win the first round of the Czech presidential election. A 68-year-old chemistry professor and former chief of the academy of science, Dr Drahos pledges to improve ties with the European Union and return "dignity" to the presidential post - a jab against Mr Zeman, a chain smoker who had made headlines by swearing in public and haranguing journalists. His nearest rival is Jiri Drahos, a chemist and the former head of the Czech Academy of Sciences, with 25 percent - voting began on Friday and the second round of voting will be held January 26-27.
Zeman is expected to win the first round of elections on Friday and Saturday. Bare-breasted, she jumped in front of him with the words "Putin's slut" painted on her chest.
The incident may wind up helping the frail president by provoking sympathy for him, as Saturday's newspapers blared headlines like, "Attack on Zeman" and "A scandalous incident".
The topless activist from Ukraine's Femen group was overpowered by bodyguards and then arrested by police.

Drahos could not be more different.

Among the leading candidates, Zeman has been the most outspoken on migration, linking Muslim immigration to security threats.
"The polarisation of society has deepened in the past months", Saradin said.
For his supporters, Zeman is a frank man, master of ingeniously politically incorrect comments: an old-school politician, heavy smoker and heavy drinker, a president who talks about the fears and hopes of the average Czech.
Another presidential candidate, former prime minister Mirek Topolanek, said Babis's support for Zeman is related to the fact that Zeman announced on Wednesday that he would want Babis to present signatures of a majority of MPs supporting his next government before he would appoint him prime minister again.
The outcome may influence Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis's chances of finally forming a cabinet as his first attempt to rule in a minority administration is likely to be rejected by parliament next week. Former diplomat Pavel Fischer was third with 8.8%.

The Frenchman signed a new two-year deal ahead of this season and it is understood there is no break clause in the contract. Wenger, however, signed a new deal at Arsenal a year ago and said he was as committed as ever to seeing out his contract.
Playing the name game in this one is laughable. "You get paid to play the regular season; this is for free". Those are two of the keys for swarming the middle, so their status and availability should be meaningful.
